    Default 1948 American Standard bar sink

    I have an old bar sink mfg on 10/7/1948, and would like to re-use it. The porcelain is not in bad shape - but the drain is very corroded. I can't get the drain off, and the metal appears to be larger, then it necks down to the "standard" bar sink drain.

    The imprints on the sink are: Standard, Louisville, Made in USA (smile), P7201, 12 x 12 and then the date 10 7 48.

    Any suggestions on how to get the drain off, and where to find a part to replace it?

    I've tried to upload pics, but get the message the file is not a valid image file.

    I live in Baltimore, so any local resources appreciated.

    Hard to say w/o seeing it.

    Regular drain can be sawed off, from the bottom, using a hacksaw or a recp saw (like sawzall). It will be easier to do if the sink is out, so release it at the trap to get the sink out.

    Application of some heat may help soften the old plumbers putty which will have dried to cement hardness by now,

    If it is a old bar sink chances are it's a 2" strainer. Just cut the old one out and replace it.
